7:11 am
show. it does mean mr. trump will receive royalties for an idea he helped conceive and a show he holds a stake in. this is perfectly normal in show business and presidents have made outside income before. usually from book royalties. president obama reported $5.1 million in book sales his first year in office. charlie, that amount fell to $56,000 last year. >> thanks, major. face the nation moderator john dickerson is with us. good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> let's talk about tweeting. >> let's talk about tweeting. >> a method of criticizing the wealth of his cabinet and how trump responds. >> well, i think he -- i mean, donald trump's argument is these people have been successful in private enterprise and they will be really successful in government. the request he is a couple things. one, what does success mean to donald trump. if your job is to bring in and dismantle a department then that's a different level of success than we would have seen in the past. the second thing is do they have a public service instinct.
7:12 am
that's the thing in government different than private enterprise, you care about the public good not just caring about the bottom line. the other thing is from truman said about eisenhower, when you come in and you are a general and used to issuing orders sometimes the bureaucracy just doesn't listen. if you're used to going in private enterprise where people do what you say what's it going to be like when you gom co-m into government. >> president obama and his administration and labor secretary put in a lot what they call worker protections. if you install someone like who he is nominating for the labor secretary what kinds of things on a practical effect might a worker experience? >> mr. puzder, there are two things, one work just -- enforcement of worker protections, all the existing regulations that are there, then there would be removing what they would see as burdensome on business, so -- >> affordable care act. >> -- everything from paperwork to -- a lot of osha, workplace safety stuff. the other thing is being on the lookout for new things.
7:13 am
i'm arguing now from sort of the obama case. a labor secretary would be on the lookout for new possible abuses of workers that if the interests are not aligned the way they would be in the obama administration you wouldn't have that kind of always searching the landscape for ways to protect workers. now what they would say on the trump side is they would be on the lookout for ways to make it easier for businesses to work in an unfettered way we creates greater profits that then go back to the workers. >> he's scheduled to have his first news conference next week where he's going to lay out his plans. what's at stake for him at this event next week? >> well, i guess -- >> is there anything at stake for him next week? >> we're kind of learning still what it means for things to be at stake for donald trump. in other words, in the old days we would have said, well, he wants to show that he's presidential, he wants to show that he can get through a press conference, but donald trump is redesigning this job and so he will do you could imagine what he has tried to do all throughout the campaign which was take an old form of press conference and use it in his own
7:14 am
way. remember when he turned his press conferences essentially into pr events for his hotel. you can imagine that he will try to capture this -- >> but do we expect to see the president of the united states -- my original question -- simply to be tweeting throughout his presidency and making comments about everything that comes up under the sun. >> no follow-up to a tweet. >> there are people advises trump and newt gingrich has said it out loud, stop doing this. the presidential voice is one that you can squander. it is not -- it is not a good that just is constantly renewing and you need to do this judiciously. we saw during the campaigns there were times that he stopped this tweeting, but he is a -- he has successfully learned how to create chaos and operate within it. he creates chaos through his tweets. it's a useful way for him to get his message out but also change the landscape. >> thanks, john. >> thank you. >> on sunday on face the nation john interviews the president elect senior advisor kellyanne
7:15 am
conway plus senators john mccain and bernie sanders. that's sunday on cbs. >> another good show on john dickerson. a south carolina courtroom today will see dylann roof's videotaped confession to the charleston church shootings. yesterday's testimony included crime scene photos and a timeline of this attack. three cameras mounted a above the doorway show parishioners arriving. dylann roof arrives 8:17 after about an hour inside the video shows him leaving with a gun in his right hand. roof told investigators he was surprised that police were not there waiting for him. more video evidence shows that roof's capture the next morning in north carolina. roof's attorney does expect a guilty verdict but he says he should not get the death penalty. >> a second police officer was died after a shooting in georgia. jodi smith was shot wednesday while responded to a domestic disturbance call. nick lar smarr was also shot he
7:16 am
died at the scene. the two were lifelong friends who attended the police academy together. they were both planning weddings for next year. the fbi joined more than 20 law enforcement agencies in the manhunt for miguel lembrick. he was found dead yesterday in a home where he was hiding. police salem brick shot himself as a s.w.a.t. team prepared to move in. the head of nasa says john glenn led a life of greatness, the first american to orbit the earth died yesterday. glenn fought in two wars and served four terms in the united states senate. president obama said in tribute, john always had the right stuff. inspiring generations of scientists, engineers and astronauts. president-elect trump called glenn a great american hero and fellow astronaut buzz aldrin said he was saddened that we lost another space pioneer and world icon. >> godspeed, john glen. >> during his 95 years on earth
7:17 am
john glenn blazed many trials. he was not the first man to reach space, but glenn's three orbits in 1962 excited americans like none before. i spoke to glenn about that pioneering flight last year. >> you're going almost 18,000 miles an hour, that's about almost 5 miles a second, it's hard to believe that we go that fast. >> glenn's space shift nearly burned up during re-entry. when he returned safely a ticker tape parade was thrown in his honor in new york's canyon of heroes. later president john f. kennedy secretly ordered glenn grounded, deeming his life too important to risk. >> it had a lot of attention, would this be a bad symbol for the country or would it be whatever. i never did know, but i knew that i didn't want to just hang around forever waiting.
7:18 am
>> lift off of discovery with a crew of six astronaut heroes and one american legend. >> glenn eventually returned to orbit in 1998. this time as the oldest man in space. at age 77. >> for a man in his 70s to be able to stand the g forces on launch, it's impressive. >> it was while training for this flight that he met fellow astronaut scott kelly. >> he never gave up. he kept pushing forward and trying to do great things and to serve his country. i think i will use him as an example, you know, and kind of a role model to how you would want to live your life in a post nasa career. >> president obama awarded him the presidential medical of freedom in 2012. a decorated marine corps pilot, glenn flew 149 combat missions during world war ii and the korean war where his wing man was hall of fame baseball player ted williams. glenn's distinguished senate career spanned 24 years, but his
7:19 am
biggest regret he said was an unsuccessful bid for president in 1984. >> you think that your ideas and all these different things on the economy and the military and our leadership in world affairs and all that your ideas in your own head are the things that should direct the future of this country. that's pretty heady stuff. >> glenn is survived by his wife of 73 years annie, their two children and two grandchildren. he will be buried at arlington national cemetery. >> we send our best to annie, she was his lifetime partner and they were such a great couple. >> what a love story. what a legacy he left for us all. >> man of great integrity. >> american hero, american legend, american icon. to evacuate a plane in less than 90 seconds, but who is training the passengers? ahead peter greenberg finds

7:39 am
there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto. there's more to know. xarelto. listen, sugar, we're lettin' you go. it's that splenda naturals gal, isn't it? coffee: look, she's sweet, she's got natural stevia, no bitter aftertaste, and zero calories.

8:02 am
snowfall in northwestern pennsylvania is blamed for a massive pile up on interstate 90. >> police in michigan say at least 40 cars were involved in a crash on i 96, the storms in the northern half of the country are moving east and south sending temperatures plunging and bringing worm warnings. >> we're following an unfolding situation in syria where russian and syrian ware planes just resumed bombing the eastern districts of aleppo. now, there had been a humanitarian pause and deborah patta was there as a russian family tried to escape the war zone. >> they came in the thousands and just kept on coming. these families have been walking for bull over eight hours. they don't care where they're going as long as it's far away from the bombing. the bombing let up briefly in the early hours of this morning following an announcement by the russians that the serial military would halt operations in eastern aleppo. that's when thousands of

8:04 am
transition, but i'm watching and -- >> well, are you talking to the president elect is the request he? >> i'm watching the transition, i'm not active, i don't really want to talk to who i'm speaking to but i'm aware of what's going on. >> can you tell us with respect to secretary of state major garrett is wearing that ray tiller son is getting a very serious look. >> again, mr. trump will speak to that. i'm not really going to talk about the type of people he's talking to. he's talking to a brood range of people. the important thing when you look at the transition is that mr. trump has taken a very active role in the transition process, he is not just interviewing the final candidates as some president elects have done and he's looking at people as to their qualifications or government not necessarily just for one position or another and i think that over the course of the transition not just the cabinet members but the subcabinet member and the agency heads are people that he will speak to because he gets that the president should be actively
8:05 am
involved in the government and he said he would be an active president, he said he was going to bring change and what you're seeing in the transition process is the kind of leadership he will bring to the presidency and that he said he would bring. >> can we go back to mitt romney for a second. there are reports that the trump team is divided about mitt romney, some say that, you know, they don't think it's a good choice, others say yes. where do you fall on that? what advice have you given him. you're saying you had conversations what are you saying. >> basically the point that the romney consideration is that donald trump is looking at putting together the strongest team for the country and the strongest team that will be part of this administration. people who are republicans, people who are democrats, people who supported him, people who haven't reported him. >> the request he is how do you feel about mitt romney being secretary of state? you clearly have donald trump's ear. >> i will support whatever obviously the president decides he's going to do. is mom knee qualified to be secretary of state? >> yes, he's qualified. the key is whether he and
8:06 am
president trump can see eye to eye on the agenda that the secretary of state will have to lead over the course of the next four years. >> so if he's qualified is it a question, then, of loyalty? >> no, it's a question of who donald trump wants in that position. i mean, the fact that they've engaged and they're starting to build a relationship back to what was a good relationship in the past is a positive thing and whether mr. romney is a part of the government or not i think they will have a relationship going forward. >> there's a report in new york magazine that describes the scene inside trump tower is like game of thrones-esque. >> i've also heard house of cards-esque. there's concern about bee trail among the troops. >> who is in charge, steve bannon or reince priebus? >> donald trump. there is no question donald trump is in charge. each people have their respective roles. transitions are by definition a work in progress. by the time it gets figured out the inauguration happens.
8:07 am
this has been of all the transitions i've witnessed over the last 40 years it this has been a very aggressive positive event. i mean, there's always people jockeying for position in a system, whether it's a campaign, a transition or an administration, but what's happening here is you're seeing a process executed. the biggest difference, i think, from this transition is that the emphasis is on bringing change to the government. >> okay. but let's talk about that. who it was that elected donald trump, a lot of people feeling economic pain and some are raising the question can all those billionaires have a true understanding of those people who supported in the things that they care about? >> first of all, donald trump has an understanding of it. i mean, he clearly two years ago understood the american people, he was very consistent throughout his whole campaign and to the surprise of many but not to donald trump the american people responded to the message. his presidency and what you're seeing in this transition process is focusing on that
8:08 am
exact thing, bringing change. the people who he has said he's going to nominate for these cabinet and agency positions are all consistent with the philosophy that he talked about in the campaign and as president obama said in 2009, yes, elections have consequences and i, obama, won. well, yes, elections have consequences -- >> i have two questions. one, what happened to you? you were part of the campaign, you were the -- the guy, and then you were gone. >> well, i mean, i became a block to his ability to communicate his message. i didn't think it was fair, i mean, the allegations were not rue, but the reality is i became a block and my goal was to get donald trump elected president of the united states. >> what do you mean you became a block? >> the media was covering charges which after the eye election were proven to the false. >> you are not currently under investigation? >> i'm not. and the government of ukraine said that the ledger was a falsified document and the bureau there that is dealing with corruption said they never were investigating me.
8:09 am
they never had any -- and they never will they said. but at the time of the election in late august -- >> will you lobby for foreign clients during the trump -- >> no. i haven't been a lobbyist in washington in 20 years probably and i have no intention of going back to that. >> what are your plans january 20th? what will you be wearing? >> to be standing in the cold watching the next president get sworn in. >> paul manafort, good to see you. >> keep you posted. good to see you. >> thanks. die hard "gilmore girls" fans are thrilled to have the show back. ben tracy met a group of trained marine snipers who have true feelings about the show. >> i have never seen a second of the "gilmore girls". >> go. get the shotgun, donny. we have to take care of this guy, man. >> why are you here? give me charlie rose. >> that's right. ahead how these marines bonded
